Speedway have been revised due to a rules violations discovered during post-race inspection of the first-place car – the No. 1 driven by Burt Myers.

The car was found to be in violation and did not conform to rules (transmission gear was not within the specified limits) of the 2008 NASCAR Touring Series rule book. The violations were discovered during post race inspection on Sept. 20.

The rules violation dropped Myers to 43rd in the official race finish. All other drivers in the event moved up one position in the official finishing order.
